UFC is pure entertainment. Don't get it twisted. The hype machine will make you think that a mediocre fighter is the baddest top 5 mofo you've ever seen.
I remember so many of these guys on the regional circuit that people would say "No way would they last in the UFC, they'd get smoked in the first round by any top 15"! Now the same fighters are making runs at title shots and are top 5ers.
It's all about exposure and media hype. Before you get to the UFC you are a can, after you leave the UFC your on the "downside" of your carreer.
They UFC is a wonderful hype machine which boasts to have the best fighters in the world. Some of which are, a lot of them aren't. Either way, Zuffa heads, (including myself) have been brainwashed by countdown shows, UFC rankings, interviews with Rogan and entertainment shows to believe that the UFC is "as real as it gets"
And that is basically a crock of shit.
But I will buy the next pay per view. Because I love MMA and I love watching guys that I have followed compete.
And yes the UFC is is 90% based on entertainment.
